(STONE MOUNTAIN, GA) – The DeKalb County School District (DCSD) has designated Tuesday, December 6, as a virtual learning day for all students. Many schools across the district serve as polling locations, and this transition to virtual learning will ensure fewer disruptions to students and faculty and help facilitate a smooth election day for Georgia’s U.S. Senate runoff.

“We view voting as a fundamental right for citizens,” said Dr. Vasanne S. Tinsley, Interim Superintendent. “As we did during the mid-term elections earlier this week, we want to continue to do our part to ensure safe, secure, and easily accessible locations for voters who choose to exercise this right.”

Schools will share more information with families in the coming weeks to facilitate a successful instructional day for all students.
